“It really does 'take a village.' It is very rewarding to know that by working together with our community partners, we can harness the amazing collective energy, talent and resources of several organizations to improve the health of those who need it most.” - Carol Paret, Senior Vice President and Chief Community Health Officer
As a leader in health and wellness for more than 100 years, Memorial Hermann recognizes that there are many organizations doing tremendous work for the underserved, often with limited resources. These organizations provide a high level of expertise, fluidity and depth of service in working with their particular populations and communities. By actively partnering with these organizations, Memorial Hermann furthers its vision of 100 percent access to basic care and improving the health and enriching the lives of adults and children residing in Southeast Texas.
To amplify their collective impact on a community, Community Benefit programs are collaborative in nature. Prospective partners are carefully selected based on their shared values and measurable impact on the community.
Memorial Hermann provides program support and in-kind support for these organizations, each of which is a proven leader committed to resolving the most pressing social issues in the Houston community
